"Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person.”
-- Gerard Way
Regardless of your religion, this time of year always marks the cracking out of our old shells, like little chicks ready for a new world. When eggs show up in dreams, they often come with the symbolism of the potential or readiness for new life. Both Venus and the Sun will form a life-altering square to Pluto this Easter, bringing the rebirth symbolism home – times 10.
It’s time to shed those winter layers in preparation for next month’s new Moon. Pluto aspects help us transform in ways that are so powerful and complete that we can never return to the old ways. Think of a one-way door, a total metamorphosis. Once born, the chick cannot climb back into the eggshell.
This is a time for asking which old shells we would like to free ourselves from. What new life is waiting for us? What is waking up in us? If we were to go on an adult Easter egg hunt, what would we secretly hope to find? What would we put on our list?
This is a time to also reclaim our childlike spirit and innocence. Working with the egg symbolism in a more ironic way, all of this current Aries energy is also asking us not to walk on eggshells in any area of our life. It’s time to crack the egg, baby!
